Alison S. Solo travelers Australia, October 2, 2015

location, bar and surrounds
Stayed a single night while in transit. Nice enough but a bit dirty. But the location more than made up for it and the staff were very friendly.

Typically expensive for Darwin

Location, air conditioning, social aspect
Over priced single room but Darwin is expensive. Bed was very uncomfortable. Bathrooms were not clean. Pool area was good. Air conditioning made room nice and cool.
